Audit Committee

Just spent 4 hours in the Council's Audit Committee, hearing evidence from various senior officers / Directors regarding the collapse of the Council's tendering exercise for Care and Support Services and the subsequent reviews and "Lessons Learned" reports. This morning's experience shows that proper, robust scrutiny by elected members can be a very effective way to add value to the Council's business and possibly even policy development. Wouldn't be appropriate to come to any consclusions yet as we've still to hear from more officials and Councillors before considering what recommendations should be progressed.
